Old Book Chemistry

Digging through old books from the shelf,
Discovered thyself memory.
Old books have some chemistry
From primary school back then.

I dreamt to reach the star
Thus far seems out of my fence.
My imaginary abstinence
Has happened from so many things.

Out of my familiar zone,
On a few smart phones and my bench,
Distraction that I have befriended
Suck persistence out from my soul.

Is this called a burn out–
When we’re aroused by nothingness?
Should not that be a bless
To access window of the life,

When fire inside was absent
When we don’t want to fight
When mountain seems so high
&Simple life is my medal.

Photo Filter

New floral filter on App Looks
It took pictures so pretty
That’s only in my fantasies,
The real me looks nothing like it’s shown.
Today I feel so exhausted
I paused to play with deceiver
And it lies that I am young forever
What matter was a girl hidden inside
Wrinkles and dark circles around eyes
Freckles got from sunshine every morning
Tears of joy, marks from smile and frowning
Causing this poor thing to get old.
Is it matter how she looks like
If she’s nice and kind as ever.
Some say that it does not matter
So please smile to her when we see.
Baby days so frequent at the peak,
People seek and hide smiling
At forty life got interesting,
But smiling was something a bit rare,
As it seems hidden with what’s inside.
So people don’t smile frequently
Therein hidden unsung story
So pity most are not to be told
To people around from outside
And all kinds of those stranger
Busy life goes by forever
The closer circle was so small.
Till one day the muscles were numb
One only feel handsome on selfie
An unpurposeful smile becomes cheesy
Whilst it used to be best medicine.

Life of Cactus

Medium: Gelly roll stardust on Black paper

I want to be like a little cactus,
Growing strong on sand and dust.
Adapting to desert afar
Or living in a tiny jar.
Facing the sun when it is hot
Protect itself with thorn it’s got.
Then comes the time it has flowers
So rare that makes people wonder.
Learning to thrive on limitation
Even when life was like fiction.

Designing & Sewing future

 

When I was a young girl I wondered,
How Singer machine can neatly
Help my Mom sew zillion of artistry-
Tailor made and fancy wedding gown.
She was a professional dress maker,
Designer of her own fashion.
How pity she’s in heaven for one,
Life was stunt I’ve never get to sew.
That time I was only eleven
It happened like a flash of memory
I grew up a humble & tiny
Tailor-made drug design researcher.
Machines at present day are very wise.
Poem like this one, can it weave?
I was told AI will replicize
Till human like I will be defeated.

Niras MGGE trip

20160918_121555Composed by Ajarn Wi Tanramluk.

Saturday we woke up at dawn,

Meeting at the front lawn to register,

On MGGE airline trip remember?

Together we go to Muang Karn.

We get breakfast on the coach,

We have roast pork then go to Pueng Wan,

Introduce ourselves was so much fun.

We have run out of words to explain

Ourselves in two words about how

Unlike cow we control population.

Then we have our yummy lunch

And have fun with  Sai Yor draw the rope

Seven people pick the bottle,

We’re able to do it with much hope,

We did some chopsticktoscope

To shovel buttons in a jar.

There’s so much we have seen

Like a teen with guitar and bongo

We stopped by and take group photos

With our friends, we let go our armour

We bend down and breaking the ice,

Being nice to these strangers.

We may not know him or her

But they offered us helping hands

All the activities we have played

To stay stronger together.

With unbreakable bond we offered

A letter containing core values.

We are proud to be MGGE crew

To take you to a big adventure.

A few years from now remember

Advisers and friends tend to remain

With you during your ups and downs.

When lab gown stained with experience.

Please you guys only be patience.

You are recipients of our love and care.

How to Read Wi’s Poem

I have been practicing how to master Thai’s 8-word poems to translate lots of my กลอนสุภาพ collection to English. With this type of poem, you basically pronounce them by fitting the sentence in 3/2/3 or 3/3/3 words and pausing in between as shown below.

Obstacle.... is there! ....."bearable"
 From a girl..... can become..... a lady
 Works my way..... to fullest..... dignity
 With happy.... young soul.... from within.
 -Wi Tanramluk

The advantage of having this type of fixed rhyme is that it is easier to memorise lengthy stories as there was a connection of vowels between each sentence. Since the thai sentences has no full-stop and no tenses, you will find sometimes my sentences are very long but the use of words towards the gist of story are connected both in sound and in meaning.

Joy of Computer Gadgets

มีลำโพงปิ๊งปั๊งให้ฟังบ้าง
หงุดหงิดตั้งนานมาก็พลันหาย
เพลงไพเราะเพราะเหง่งหง่างช่างสุขใจ
ไม่เสียดายที่ซื้อมาตั้งหลายตังค์
แล้วยังมีเม้าส์หายใจไฟกระพริบ
มันวิบวิบวับแวมแซมสีสัน
มีคีย์บอร์ดวิบวับอยู่เคียงกัน
ช่างสุขสันต์งานไม่เดินเพลินชมไฟ

A Bluetooth speaker, my merry,

When I was cranky then feel right

With classical music calm my mind,

With shiny speaker worth the pence.

I also have a breathing mousey,

with seven LED on my bench,

Light on my keyboard worth every cents,

I enjoy everything, jingle bells.

Cambridge Summer

A day in summer…

walked over Bridge of Sigh.
People punt nearby
and the sky was so blue.
Flowers were flourished.
Holy cheese, I missed you.
Where goes, haven’t a clue
Life is true, you weren’t there.
Walking like a foolish
Only wish you were there.
Look for you everywhere,
really care where you are.
Walking to Trinity,
Only see a red car.
Looking for you from Mars,
Where you are, where are you.
Here you are, my destiny,
in Sainsbury from afar
By the fridge, you weren’t far,
Oh cheddar, my very dear.

Coding

Spending five hours

waiting for my codes to compile.
Life seems a bit sour,
SuSE doesn’t let me type Thai.
Can you see my sorrow?
Oh…o my Monday has gone.
If the problem last till tomorrow,
I will have an ice-cream cone.
